It's nice looking out of my kithchen window at the moment because the apple tree is in bloom, sadly almost finished now, I took the pics a couple of weeks ago.
I love the blossoms before they have opened and have that lovely deep pink tinge to them.
I have some birds which permanently reside in this tree - it's quite an unusual variety - tinbird. They used to be part of a mobile hanging in the tree but I got fed up of having to untangle them every spring as the winds wound them around the branches. There were six originally but one disappeared - I wonder if a neighbourhood cat got confused and gave itself a bad tummy ache.
